Equine Assisted Activities & Programs
Our programs are created to build on physical, cognitive, social, emotional and behavioral abilities. All Walk On participants are evaluated prior to admission to the program. Goals for equine assisted activities are determined based on the specific needs of the individual.
Therapeutic Riding Lessons
Our therapeutic riding program partners with our horses to provide safe, fun and individualized riding lessons to our participants. These lessons and our facilities are tailored specifically for individuals with a wide range of disabilities. Time spent on horseback can promote balance, coordination, muscle strength, and overall physical well-being. Contact us today for more information!
Therapeutic Driving Lessons
In our therapeutic driving program, participants learn how to safely drive a horse and carriage. This can be an excellent opportunity for those who are unable to ride, as well as those who are simply more interested in learning to drive. Therapeutic driving lessons share many benefits with therapeutic riding, including improved fine motor skills and balance. If this piques your interest, contact us today for more information.
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) Coming Soon
Equine assisted learning is an experiential approach to learning which partners with the horse to develop educational, professional and personal goals. These unique experiences all take place on the ground, while the participants work together and with the horse to complete a series of different challenges. EAL can help improve creative and critical thinking, teamwork skills, and problem solving, to name just a handful. Contact us for more information!
We have had a wide variety of different groups come out to the barn – from Scout troops to residents at assisted living homes. In the past, we have held meet and greets with the horses where group participants groom and pet the horses. Other groups have been part of more in-depth programs, which can include an introduction to grooming and riding. If you are interested in planning an event for your group, contact us for more information!
